Hey, for the past few months my Acer laptop has been randomly shutting itself off, almost like a power cut as it has no signs of shutting down it just immediate. I have no trouble turning it back on, or using it for that matter. But it does get annoying, especially when trying to install something that restarts every time the computer does. I recently noticed that the laptop as a whole gets pretty hot and was wondering if that could do anything to it, or perhaps that it is plugged in (battery charging) every time I use it. The laptop is about 3 or 4 years old now. I'm no expert on computers, nor viruses, but I can't see this being a virus problem if the computer can last for hours on occasions and then within 5 minutes when i restart it before shutting down. I don't clean the laptop, I wouldn't know how for that matter, besides the dusting of the screen. I was wondering if any of these things could be the cause of this annoying problem. Also the majority of the time I use the laptop it's laying on my bed, or on my lap, incase that has any effect on the situation.

Any ideas?

Your video card and/or CPU is overheating and sending a signal to your hardware to trigger an immediate power off to prevent hardware damage. You probably need to open up your computer and clean it out of dust. Laying it on your bed or lap may not ensure getting the best airflow to the bottom vents of your computer.

So the whole bottom panel of the laptop, and dust inside it?
Thanks Neo!
